From the Caltrans Archives: Bay Bridge Opening 1936

You've probably seen the recent opening of the new Bay Bridge, but here is some footage of the first Bay Bridge opening in 1936.  Back then, the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) was known as the California Department of Public Works, Division of Highways.
